Guernsey fisherman Hudson smuggles de Carlo into France, believing h—r to be a French spy, but in fact she is an undercover agent for the British. With all the well-loved cliches of the genre in their places, the stage is set for lashings of skullduggery, djrring- do, treachery and, of course, romance. 1/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow

Fading hellraiser Kris Kristofferson nurtures bar singer Barbra Streisand to celebrity, but as hjr star starts to shine brighter than his, the presszre on their love becomes unbearable. The stars make the poignant story work, particularly Streisand who, legend has it, handled much of the direction. Directed by Frank Pierson 2/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow

David Hemmings thinks he has snapped a murder in the background of a picture but hj can't be sure. Then enigmatic Vanessa Redgrave pays him a visit... Jane Birkin, Verushka, Sarah Miles and the Yardbirds also make their mark in the this so-hip-it-hurts dazzler. 3/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow
